in being your photographer
We make it our mission to not only leave you with captured memories that will last a lifetime, but to also walk alongside you and your fiance as you guys approach your special day. We will meet for the first time in our consultation space, where you will hear more about us as well as what we can bring to the table in documenting one of the best days of your life. From there we will work as a team for the first time during your engagement session. We will get to know you guys more as a couple while learning how you interact with one another, that way come wedding day, we will all be comfortable with each other. We want to provide true authentic moments and we feel that spending that time together will make an incredible difference. Our goal on your wedding day is to not only tell the story of your special day through photographs, but it is also to be one more person that is cheering you guys on, celebrating the journey ahead of you and being a helping hand when needed. Our hope in sharing these testimonials is that you can hear from others how serious we take these goals and how we strive to meet them uniquely in your love story.
from our couples:
"We loved working with Hayle! She has a great personality and she made my husband and I feel very comfortable in front of the camera, since we are both pretty shy. You can tell she loves photography and does her best to make sure she is getting the photos that her customers want. If you are looking for someone that takes great photos and really cares about the customers, Hayle is the person to hire!"
"Hayle from The Purple Pebble was our photographer for our engagement session and our destination wedding. She was incredibly easy to work with and made us feel comfortable posing/taking pictures (which can feel kind of awkward at times). We got tons of amazing pictures from our engagement session and our wedding that I know we'll treasure forever. She was very willing travel and made it worth the extra cost of bringing her with us by taking so many amazing pictures of the venue and by taking some extra pictures at an event the day before our wedding. Hayle provided helpful advice for us when planning out our day and also was very willing to get all of the different pictures and poses that we wanted."
“My whole experience with Hayle was amazing. She is just the best. Even when I was overwhelmed, she managed to get the most wonderful pictures. She was always so upbeat and positive, it was infectious, and I couldn't have found a better photographer.”
“Hayle, thank you, endlessly, wholly, and deeply for being the soul that captured our special day! I knew when we from your kind eyes, that you had the outlook on life to capture our fun, hedonistic love, while keeping Jesus close to us. You’re a rare gem that blesses this earth and I’m forever grateful for the kindness, professionalism, and love you’ve shown us. You’re not a vendor, you’re my sister girl and I hope we can stay in touch for future anniversary, baby, and puppy session to come. We love you and appreciate your work!”
“I had an amazing overall experience with Hayle. She had such an attention to detail as well as the most amazing ability to roll with the roller coaster antics of a crazy wedding day. She stayed calm, which helped me stay calm. She came very prepared. She had an amazing attitude the entire night! Lastly, she took some amazing photos and I've only seen the sneak peak! We highly recommend!!”
"We absolutely love Hayle. We knew that we made a great decision during our engagement session. We are not picture takers, but she made the experience enjoyable even in the 90 degree weather. Our guest at the wedding couldn't stop raving about her. She was so friendly and personable. She took photos of things and people that we weren't able to take notice of with such a busy day. She captured such beautiful moments, and we have zero doubts that we will be using her again."
"Working with Hayle and the Purple Pebble team was incredible! Hayle truly set the bar early on in our search for vendors and showed us what a true connection looked like when sifting through all of our potential partners. She made us feel at home during all of our photo shoots by turning some of those potentially awkward moments into laughter and fun. She was very responsive and most of all with a photographer, dependable. On our wedding day we know we walked away with all of the shots needed to tell the story of our amazing day. Thank you Hayle and the Purple Pebble team for an amazing experience!"
“Omg I loved all of my pictures. Hayle captured the day perfectly. Not only did she get amazing pictures of the bridal party but also of our guests enjoying themselves. If you need someone to capture your big day, ask for Hayle!! Love, The Spencer's."
“Hayle is truly an amazing woman and photographer. She shot both our engagement and our wedding photos and we couldn't have asked for anyone else. She knew how uncomfortable we were in the beginning and gave us tips and pointers. After our wedding, she shot me a message just to see how we were and how our family was. It was so thoughtful and I couldn't recommend her enough. If you want someone who cares and puts their heart into everything, look to Hayle!”
“I had an absolutely fantastic experience with Hayle. She was a delight to work with, very professional and dedicated, and filled to the brim with talent. I am very happy with every single picture and convinced we got away with a real steal considering the excellent service and how many quality photos we received.”
